We will also have a special Spanish version of the contest, which will feature Jorge Ponce and Javier Valera as executive producers of this reboot through the production company Encofrados Encofrasa (‘La resistencia’).
A version that will feature the presence of the iconic duo formed by Fernando Costilla and Paco Bravo, who were the announcers of the reissue of ‘Humor amarillo’ that we saw on Cuatro in the two thousand. Costilla and Bravo are also known for broadcasting WWE shows in our country. Juan Herrera and Miguel Ángel Coll were in charge of the original dubbing.

According to the platform through the recording booth, in addition to Ponce, several comedians will put their voice and touch on the events of the contest.
In the words of Oscar ProlPrime Video Spain’s head of non-fiction originals:
